Motivation for WCET-Aware Compilation

The following couple of pages motivates the problems a compiler designer has to face when designing WCET-aware optimizations. The nature of WCET imposes completely new challenges to compilers, turning the development of WCET-aware optimizations into an even more demanding area of research as compared to traditional compiler optimization.

Please use the side menu on the left to learn more about basic notions and concepts of WCETs and static timing analysis and their impact on compiler optimizations.
